How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy skin #1

How to Get Flawless Skin with At Home Microderm MD By Trophy Skin

This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

I’m addicted to skin care… maybe because I never had great skin when I was in my 20s. Now, since I discovered ways that can make me look and feel even better than when I was younger, I seriously want more and hope my skin will look younger for years to come. 😉 I am constantly on the hunt for a great product to maintain, or improve, my skin condition.

I have heard a lot of good things about Microderm MD for a while. It’s basically an exfoliation system that is designed for home use. If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably already saw me talking and showing you how important all the exfoliating goodness is for your skin. I fully believe removing the dead cells on the surface of your skin is the key to letting all the great serums and creams get absorbed completely.

I have been reading reviews and watching youtube videos about this Microderm MD. Some users feel that it’s taken years off their facial appearance. If you know me, you will for sure know I am sold because of this. 😉 Anything that has anti-aging benefits is definitely on top of my wishlist.

What the heck is the Microderm MD?

Microderm MD is an exfoliation system that is designed for home use and it claims to get rid of age spots, discoloration, sun damage, blemishes, uneven skin texture, uneven skin tone, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Boy, that sounds too good to be true! Can you imagine your skin without all of those issues? Your face will seriously look flawless! Yes, I NEED this machine in my life!!!

I will agree with most of you that my skin is in pretty good condition because I take a great care of it. But there are still some issues with my skin that you may not notice because the magical power of makeup. 😉 It is quite a challenge to my self-esteem to show you the real me without the cover of makeup and under a high definition lense. Anyway, here you go!

Ok, now you see me! I really would like to get rid of the discoloration, uneven skin texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores. I really hate those huge pores on my nose and my forehead. Below I am going to show you the machine and my initial experience using it.

How Microderm MD works

Here is what the machine looks like.

Based on the directions for this product:

1. Gently wash face.

I didn’t use any deep cleaning product or daily scrubbing gel because I have sensitive skin and I didn’t want to over do it.

2. Use the Microderm MD machine.

For best results, they recommend starting with Auto Mode for diamond tip microdermabrasion and using it 2-3 times per week. For sensitive skin, it may be more appropriate to use just 1-2 times per week. So for me, I used it once a week.

The Auto Mode:

When you push the start button all you need to do is watch the screen for instructions and listen for the beeps which mean it’s time to change the part of your face you’re working on.

Here is what the diamond tip looks like. The fine diamond tip makes the dead cells loose and then the machine sucks them in. You just put it on your face and move with the flow as the screen shows. You should not use it when you have makeup on!!! I’m just trying to show you how to use it. Soon you will see me really using it.;)

Here is the look with the filter. You will see some dead skin cells later after you use it. Guaranteed!

The machine comes with 100 filters to get you started.

Ok, here are some photos when I was actually using it. 😉

It is quite easy to use. Just plug in, remove the cap from the diamond tip, turn to auto and then follow the screen. It only took about 5 minutes to get my whole face, neck and upper chest done. This is the photo I took right after. I can feel the dead skin cell dust on my face. 😉

I have seen a lot of videos that show how much dead skin cells piled up on the black filter after using it. I do daily scrubbing and twice a week exfoliating, so I thought probably there was nothing on the filter. But I was wrong.

Yuck! I dropped the filter and lost some of the dead skin piles on the it. Now you can see side by side of a brand new filter with the used one.

3. Re-wash my face to remove the dead skin cells that have been exfoliated.

I used cold water to cool down my skin, it was quite red, as it should be for a great result. Then I added one toner.

4. Moisturize my face with night serum and cream.

Once microdermabrasion has removed the top layer of dead skin, I had much better results from my skincare products because now they are actually being absorbed by my skin. The biggest result I have seen so far is all the good serums and creams I have been using for a long time are actually not just settling on my skin. They are absorbed very fast into my skin. It feels like my skin finally got its food all in its mouth. I do notice makeup applies easier and more flawlessly as well.

I will continue to use it for 4 to 6 weeks as it claims you see the best result after that time period and I will share with you again! So stay tuned!

Why Buying Designer Accessories is Worth the Investment

Why Buying Designer Accessories is Worth the Investment

After I turned 40 years old, I decided to rebuild my wardrobe by buying less pieces, but instead I began buying great quality and classical pieces which will last me a long time. Now after 3 years, I want to say that I have done pretty good with my plan. Of course, I have periodically spent money unwisely or bought cheap pieces just because they are trendy. It truly has been an ongoing self-reflecting process and here is the golden rule I have learned.

Why Buying Designer Accessory is Worth the Investment

Buying Designer Accessories is Worth the Investment

I am not a very careful person when it comes to taking care of expensive clothes. Most of them are dry clean only, so they just keep costing me more money every time I wear it. For the majority of us, every penny is hard earned and we definitely need to be smart about how we use it. Another reason I was turned away from designer clothing is I rarely can find a great brand for my petite frame. It seems like they are all designed for tall people. 😉 So I hardly buy any designer clothing. The only thing I buy is designer jeans and my Burberry trench coat because they are super comfy and easy to take care of.

Why Buying Designer Accessory is Worth the Investment

Clothing may make up the majority of an outfit, but accessories are the ones to define your style and either make an outfit or break a look. As Giorgio Armani once said, “Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day”. If you are trying to upgrade your look, there is no need to buy designer clothes, just put your money into accessories. By mixing high end accessories and main stream clothing, you can create so many different looks that make you feel like a million bucks. Here are some key things you want to invest in.

Why Buying Designer Accessory is Worth the Investment

1. Start with a Designer Bag

My late husband used his bonus and bought this red Louis Vuitton for me about 2 years ago. It was my first major designer investment. Before that I had bought many Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Coach. I have used this bag millions of times when I needed a splash of color for an outfit. I love the size and cross body straps, as these features make it a practical bag that can be worn for day, and then remove the straps for night. I still get many, many comments on this bag every time I use it. I have not seen anyone else using the same bag. It is surely well made. Although it has been in the rain and constantly put on the floor or ground, it still looks brand new. I am sure I will use it for many, many more years. Below are a few recent looks where I used this bag.

This little Chanel was purchased for me by my late husband a year ago. He knew I always wanted a Chanel but I just couldn’t see myself spending that large amount of money like that. So he took me to Saks 5th and bought this for me. He said he was very happy to be the man who bought my dream bag for me. This bag is a limited edition and I love the vintage metal top handle. Again, I love a bag with straps and this one has them too. It is a little bit smaller than I had hoped, but I still love it very very much! Below are a few recent looks where I used this bag.

After I bought the red Louis Vuitton and the black Chanel bag, I sold all my other bags because I just didn’t use them anymore. If I need a color to spice up an outfit, I use my red one. If I need a black bag to calm down a bold look, I use the Chanel. Don’t you see? Here is where the saving money is showing. Each designer bags is quite pricey, but I don’t need to keep buying bags because they are good enough to use for just about everything and last forever.

Below are a few other designer bags that I have invested in over the past few years.

A few key things to keep in mind when investing in Designer Accessories:

Is it a classic style that will always be in style? Avoid the “in the moment” trendy items that aren’t “in” every season. Pick classic styles, colors, shapes, and designs that will always be in style.

While it can seem stressful investing an entire paycheck into buying one single designer piece, if you follow the tips above, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re spending your money wisely by investing in an item that will last for years and years, instead of wasting money on cheap knocks offs that break within months.
